Episode #3299

Chamber Folk Pop

« previous episode | next episode »

Tuesday, February 07, 2012

For this New Sounds program, hear music that falls in the space between classical and pop, as well as in the small hollow between chamber music and folk.  There’s electronic chamber pop music by composer Son Lux (aka Ryan Lott) for yMusic, the versatile composer/performer collective, and some post-rock from the Arcade Fire’s multi-instrumentalist, Richard Reed Parry, in the guise of the  ensemble, Bell Orchestre.   We'll also expand the folk umbrella to include traditional instruments of Korea and Japan making chamber music. 

Listen to the komungo, the traditional zither of Korea, actually four of them, on a recent recording from Geomungo Factory.  There’s also music for koto (Japanese zither) in a recording by David Bowie, from “Heroes.”  Also, hear ambient music from a record of meditations and dances for zither by Brian Eno & Laraaji.  And more.

Hey there,

I just caught the end of your show on Tuesday, February 7th 2012 and part of the last piece of music you played. The best I could do is repeat "93.9 11:55" in my head. It would be great if you could provide me with the title and composer of that piece. Thanks, and take care.
